Options

--dry-run | --no-dry-run (boolean)

Checks whether you have the required permissions for the action, without actually making the request, and provides an error response. If you have the required permissions, the error response is DryRunOperation . Otherwise, it is UnauthorizedOperation .

--client-token (string)

Unique, case-sensitive identifier that you provide to ensure the idempotency of the request. For more information, see Ensuring Idempotency .

--spot-options (structure)

Describes the configuration of Spot Instances in an EC2 Fleet.

AllocationStrategy -> (string)

Indicates how to allocate the target Spot Instance capacity across the Spot Instance pools specified by the EC2 Fleet.

If the allocation strategy is lowest-price , EC2 Fleet launches instances from the Spot Instance pools with the lowest price. This is the default allocation strategy.

If the allocation strategy is diversified , EC2 Fleet launches instances from all of the Spot Instance pools that you specify.

If the allocation strategy is capacity-optimized , EC2 Fleet launches instances from Spot Instance pools with optimal capacity for the number of instances that are launching.

MaintenanceStrategies -> (structure)

The strategies for managing your Spot Instances that are at an elevated risk of being interrupted.

CapacityRebalance -> (structure)

The strategy to use when Amazon EC2 emits a signal that your Spot Instance is at an elevated risk of being interrupted.

ReplacementStrategy -> (string)

The replacement strategy to use. Only available for fleets of type maintain .

To allow EC2 Fleet to launch a replacement Spot Instance when an instance rebalance notification is emitted for an existing Spot Instance in the fleet, specify launch . You must specify a value, otherwise you get an error.

Note

When a replacement instance is launched, the instance marked for rebalance is not automatically terminated. You can terminate it, or you can leave it running. You are charged for all instances while they are running.

InstanceInterruptionBehavior -> (string)

The behavior when a Spot Instance is interrupted. The default is terminate .

InstancePoolsToUseCount -> (integer)

The number of Spot pools across which to allocate your target Spot capacity. Valid only when Spot AllocationStrategy is set to lowest-price . EC2 Fleet selects the cheapest Spot pools and evenly allocates your target Spot capacity across the number of Spot pools that you specify.

SingleInstanceType -> (boolean)

Indicates that the fleet uses a single instance type to launch all Spot Instances in the fleet. Supported only for fleets of type instant .

SingleAvailabilityZone -> (boolean)

Indicates that the fleet launches all Spot Instances into a single Availability Zone. Supported only for fleets of type instant .

MinTargetCapacity -> (integer)

The minimum target capacity for Spot Instances in the fleet. If the minimum target capacity is not reached, the fleet launches no instances.

MaxTotalPrice -> (string)

The maximum amount per hour for Spot Instances that you're willing to pay.

--on-demand-options (structure)

Describes the configuration of On-Demand Instances in an EC2 Fleet.

AllocationStrategy -> (string)

The order of the launch template overrides to use in fulfilling On-Demand capacity. If you specify lowest-price , EC2 Fleet uses price to determine the order, launching the lowest price first. If you specify prioritized , EC2 Fleet uses the priority that you assigned to each launch template override, launching the highest priority first. If you do not specify a value, EC2 Fleet defaults to lowest-price .

CapacityReservationOptions -> (structure)

The strategy for using unused Capacity Reservations for fulfilling On-Demand capacity. Supported only for fleets of type instant .

UsageStrategy -> (string)

Indicates whether to use unused Capacity Reservations for fulfilling On-Demand capacity.

If you specify use-capacity-reservations-first , the fleet uses unused Capacity Reservations to fulfill On-Demand capacity up to the target On-Demand capacity. If multiple instance pools have unused Capacity Reservations, the On-Demand allocation strategy (lowest-price or prioritized ) is applied. If the number of unused Capacity Reservations is less than the On-Demand target capacity, the remaining On-Demand target capacity is launched according to the On-Demand allocation strategy (lowest-price or prioritized ).

If you do not specify a value, the fleet fulfils the On-Demand capacity according to the chosen On-Demand allocation strategy.

SingleInstanceType -> (boolean)

Indicates that the fleet uses a single instance type to launch all On-Demand Instances in the fleet. Supported only for fleets of type instant .

SingleAvailabilityZone -> (boolean)

Indicates that the fleet launches all On-Demand Instances into a single Availability Zone. Supported only for fleets of type instant .

MinTargetCapacity -> (integer)

The minimum target capacity for On-Demand Instances in the fleet. If the minimum target capacity is not reached, the fleet launches no instances.

MaxTotalPrice -> (string)

The maximum amount per hour for On-Demand Instances that you're willing to pay.

--cli-input-json (string) Performs service operation based on the JSON string provided. The JSON string follows the format provided by --generate-cli-skeleton. If other arguments are provided on the command line, the CLI values will override the JSON-provided values. It is not possible to pass arbitrary binary values using a JSON-provided value as the string will be taken literally.

--generate-cli-skeleton (string) Prints a JSON skeleton to standard output without sending an API request. If provided with no value or the value input, prints a sample input JSON that can be used as an argument for --cli-input-json. If provided with the value output, it validates the command inputs and returns a sample output JSON for that command.

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.

Examples

To create an EC2 Fleet that launches Spot Instances as the default purchasing model

This example creates an EC2 Fleet using the minimum parameters required to launch a fleet: a launch template, target capacity, and default purchasing model. The launch template is identified by its launch template ID and version number. The target capacity for the fleet is 2 instances, and the default purchasing model is spot, which results in the fleet launching 2 Spot Instances.

When you create an EC2 Fleet, use a JSON file to specify information about the instances to launch.

Command:

aws ec2 create-fleet --cli-input-json file://file_name.json

Output:

{
    "FleetId": "fleet-12a34b55-67cd-8ef9-ba9b-9208dEXAMPLE"

}

To create an EC2 Fleet that launches On-Demand Instances as the primary capacity

This example creates an EC2 Fleet that specifies the total target capacity of 2 instances for the fleet, and a target capacity of 1 On-Demand Instance. The default purchasing model is spot. The fleet launches 1 On-Demand Instance as specified, but needs to launch one more instance to fulfil the total target capacity. The purchasing model for the difference is calculated as TotalTargetCapacity - OnDemandTargetCapacity = DefaultTargetCapacityType, which results in the fleet launching 1 Spot Instance.

When you create an EC2 Fleet, use a JSON file to specify information about the instances to launch.

Command:

aws ec2 create-fleet --cli-input-json file://file_name.json

Output:

{
    "FleetId": "fleet-12a34b55-67cd-8ef9-ba9b-9208dEXAMPLE"
}

Where file_name.json contains the following:

{
    "LaunchTemplateConfigs": [
        {
            "LaunchTemplateSpecification": {
                "LaunchTemplateId": "lt-0e8c754449b27161c",

    }
}

To create an EC2 Fleet that launches Spot Instances using the lowest-price allocation strategy

If the allocation strategy for Spot Instances is not specified, the default allocation strategy, which is lowest-price, is used. This example creates an EC2 Fleet using the lowest-price allocation strategy. The three launch specifications, which override the launch template, have different instance types but the same weighted capacity and subnet. The total target capacity is 2 instances and the default purchasing model is spot. The EC2 Fleet launches 2 Spot Instances using the instance type of the launch specification with the lowest price.

Output

FleetId -> (string)

The ID of the EC2 Fleet.

Errors -> (list)

Information about the instances that could not be launched by the fleet. Valid only when Type is set to instant .

(structure)

Describes the instances that could not be launched by the fleet.

LaunchTemplateAndOverrides -> (structure)

The launch templates and overrides that were used for launching the instances. The values that you specify in the Overrides replace the values in the launch template.

LaunchTemplateSpecification -> (structure)

The launch template.

LaunchTemplateId -> (string)

The ID of the launch template. If you specify the template ID, you can't specify the template name.

LaunchTemplateName -> (string)

The name of the launch template. If you specify the template name, you can't specify the template ID.

Version -> (string)

The launch template version number, $Latest , or $Default . You must specify a value, otherwise the request fails.

If the value is $Latest , Amazon EC2 uses the latest version of the launch template.

If the value is $Default , Amazon EC2 uses the default version of the launch template.
